The Seronera River – A Paradise for Predators

Game viewing along the Seronera River of the Central Serengeti in Tanzania, East Africa offers truly extraordinary opportunities to witness Africa’s big cats in action. The combination of location and resident prey attracts the largest and most diverse population of predators in Africa. The secret is out – there is simply no better place inAfricato observe these large carnivores in action!

Words from Peace House Secondary School

The needs of Africa are many and can appear overwhelming, but just as a furnace that melts gold starts with only a spark; education is the spark to ignite positive change and to reshape the future.

We are proud of each student at Peace House Secondary School. …

Swahili Anyone?

I just wanted to share this latest great find with you! As many of you may already know, Swahili is the main native language spoken in Tanzania. Many clients express a desire to learn a few fun words and phrases in Swahili ahead of time. There are many basic Swahili-English two-way dictionaries on the market. But most of them contain only the spelling of the Swahili translation, which is fine for spelling the words correctly but can still be difficult to pronounce the words, especially if you’ve …

The Lion Lady – Live from the Bush – Oct 9, 2011

AHHHHH!! On our way from Bilila to Grumeti Game Reserve we saw a few large herds of wildebeest, impala, baboons & giraffe. Just past the Ikoma gate our driver from Grumeti game reserve was waiting for us. We did our transfer and said a very fond “see you later” to our ADS guide. We were quite anxious to get to our Camp Sabora as it is in a lovely remote setting and we were looking forward to just relaxing in such serenity. More giraffe, huge herd …

The Lion Lady – Live from the Bush – Oct 7, 2011

WOW!!!! I am not sure where to start!!! This morning we left Bilila at 5:45 am and headed directly back to central Serengeti to see if we could see some more leopards. On the way we passed giraffe, wildebeest, Thomson gazelles, hippos, warthogs, baboon, hartebeest and hyena. At 7:05 our guide (who is excellent, of course) spotted a leopard sitting at the base of a tree about 75 feet away. We were watching it intently, when it lay down. Then we saw a leopard sitting …

Peace House Update – Celebrating the First Fruits

September 24, 2011 marked a momentous occasion forPeaceHouseSecondary Schoolas we honored 61 graduating students. The celebration of our very first graduating class stood as a special milestone for the school’s progress. When PHS opened four years ago, these students arrived with wide-eyed fear, excitement and, at last– hope. Orphaned or vulnerable, they all came from deeply impoverished homes. They were bright, hard-working and eager to learn, but the opportunity for secondary education seemed an impossible dream all because they could not afford school fees. Now …

We arrived at Migration camp just before the sky opened up and we had a heavy rain shower and lightning which was a wonderful way …
